Here it is, time to attend GMIC's Sustainable Meetings Conference. As our participation has shifted this year, it will be interesting to see it from a new perspective. I look forward to having more time to reconnect with my fellow professionals who share my passion about this work.
Since we have a great group of like-minded individuals in one place, we thought it was a good time to offer a free trial of the MeetGreen Calculator we re-released last summer. The Calculator was developed anticipating the APEX/ASTM Standards, integrating what is understood to be included. It also allows you to earn points for policies, procedures and measurements that are part of BS8901. Further updates include more thorough quantitative questions and expanded reporting features. The administrative capabilities now allow more sensitivity with user accounts and are very beneficial to companies that have multiple users.
The intention of this offer, is to get feedback on the tool from people in the green meeting industry. This is valuable feedback for us and a great way for users to sample the tool and see what is possible.
If you are interested in a free trial account please look for myself, Amy Spatrisano, Shawna McKinley or Britta Ehnebuske during the GMIC conference. If you aren't attending this year, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will make sure you are included in this offer.
